Local Loves: East + West

December 17, 2014

If you're a frequent reader of our blog, you know we love supporting our favorite local businesses. This week we're featuring our favorite one stop shop for the guy in your life called East + West. We stopped by on a Saturday to pick up some things for our husbands (that we can't mention, just in case they're reading this)...but trust us, we snagged some unique, high quality, one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts, & we can't wait to give them! If you still have a few fellas on your to-buy list, East & West can't be missed!

We were greeted warmly by the owner, Brian, who was very friendly and happy to assist us with our shopping. We learned that he and his wife Lauren opened up East + West two years ago. It is located in downtown Kirkwood, right next to the bike shop & across the street from Dewey's. Most of their products are American-made, with the exception of some of Brian's favorite name brands, e.g. Vans shoes. Brian and his wife also design a lot of their clothing and apparel. They also have an impressive supply of other local brands.

Be sure to check them out! They are one of the coolest guy stores we have ever seen. And if you don't have plans this Thursday, Dec 18 and are in the St. Louis area, East and West are hosting an event called #RepYourHood, featuring free cocktails from Sump Coffee & Basil Hayden's & free food from Mofu. Music will be performed by Radame. The event is from 7-9 at their Kirkwood Store to celebrate the release of their newest St. Louis sweatshirt designed by Baldwin Denim. So be there! And be sure to "Rep Your Hood" by purchasing their new STL digs!
